For exercising something even the 1st amendment says I have a right to?
I’m saying: Cause & effect.
We fixed illegal immigration in the 1950s, lowered it by 95% in fact. Yet we broke the system again in the 1960s.
There is a clear, omnipresent trend, from when we changed the law in 1962, to illegals growing to where it is today.
The law changed, and we got non-compliance as a result. The lawmakers screwed up, and they never owned their mistake.
Kept pretending the problem was “enforcement”, kept giving assurances “This time, we’ll do it for sure”.
Yeah. But no. The problem is human factors. The problem is they made a system too bloody costly, and too darn long, for people to plan & live their lives around.
So you get massive non-compliance. Like a gun control law for “assault weapons” in Massachusetts.
